    @Kevin Pashuk Reading your post, in the beginning, gave me a chuckle. :) Really, you are lively, good person. It's not your growing age matters, but what concerns is how expansive your heart is with contentment and face filled with cheerfulness.

    In the mirror, you look aghast as if someone has snatched your prized collection. :)

    #2 I guess you could say I already am. I am the CEO of CorAzul trade school in Querétaro, Mexico which I opened the doors to in 2013. I am trying to open schools in every state. I offer several classes for less than a dollar .15 pesos to be exact. I work hard, get hired, perform as a singer, and feature artists...just to name a few things. The more I earn the more I can give back. Thank you for the nice words.

    @FancyJ London wow you are quite a firecracker 😊🤗 I do get your passion on this topic, and how it may seem unfair. On the other side , maybe they barter for things unseen. I have seen a few documentaries of co-ops being formed in India which help artisans an self employed crafts people sell their stuff at a profit. Their are many parts of the dynamics of this culture...and it is good to point out avenues of learnings to others. Maybe you can become an advocate for a mentor to make a positive difference in this , which you feel very strongly about. Great story .🙂🤗🐝🐝

    Jim,

    As another survivor of those dark ages I frequently try to time-slip to those better times in the evening. My biggest problem is that I never remember to shut down the ring tones on my smart phone. It is at it's worst at 6 AM here in Oregon when the e-mail feed starts to pump it up as the East coast kicks into gear.
    And so it goes.

    @Jim Murray It's understandable how disconnected you must be feeling, with this transition.

    Moving from one place to another...though you may find the new place adventurous, exciting, but it will still make you a person as if you are battling to find some remedy and tips for staying busy.

    Aha...experience the dark ages, and being aloof from connectivity, recall your past and observe the present to pen down some inspiring posts! :)

    You brought me back in time @Andrew Books! We grew up poor too. Mom raised 5 children on her own after dad died. We never knew were poor because we were rich with love and so much more. Somehow mom managed to set aside 500.00 each year and spent 100.00 per child at Christmas. Obviously, we didn't know this until after we all were older and the idea of Santa wore off. Mom spent weeks making cookies and her famous Rum- fruitcake prior to Christmas, she always allowed us to help.

    Last year before mom passed I had no Christmas spirit. I didn't send cards to many and didn't even put up our tree. I decided this year to fight the blues... it's not easy but I'm putting my pre-lit tree up and decorating. It helps that I'm also hosting a party today! I bought my grandson's, son and daughter in law tickets to ride The Festival of Lights Train in Georgetown Co, which is their main gift. I'm trying to purchase gifts (other than tons of toys) that the boys will hopefully remember.

    Thanks for this, you've inspired me to feel even more festive this Christmas, we have a lot to be thankful for, including the addition to my new granddaughter who will be almost 6 months old at Christmas! Best wishes to you and yours!

    Bebee is a great platform for blogging, but you may want more control by having your own dedicated blog, hosted or not, or simply to try to increase the probability that your work will be found and read on the Internet.

    Ok, so my post halfway written! After conversing with you fine folks, I had an idea spark. All I'm saying at this point is that @Deb Helfrich is mentioned in the post.

    #10 @Brian McKenzie: good call. I wrote a post last year about Black Friday and how people beat each other up to get a TV. I might have to expand on it this year.

    @John White, MBA I believe there was a sitcom 1/2 episode about a coffee table book about coffee tables or maybe it was about coffee table books. I believe Seinfeld is chalk full of ideas since that show was supposed to be about nothing in particular. How about for a social profile choosing a profile pic of the genuine person versus using an avatar, or redesigning your moniker?

    I recently made up a story about a writer's block which I produced here on beBee. It was well received yet was just a bare bones shell to be expanded upon at a later time.

    I don't think you have writers block, just a subject matter block. I would love to see someone come up with stuff about how drones can revolutionize certain processes and what to use a drone for business-wise.

    #4 No worries, Buddy. I only had 1 bout of The Block and it's no fun. That time was when beBee first announced Producer.... but I couldn't think of a damned thing to write about, so I wrote about using Producer for the first time, live and unedited.

    This is one masterwork, @Sara Jacobovici. The synchronicity that jumps out at me is this nugget: "Knowing is the sense that allows us to engage in our physical world." I wrote just about 20 minutes ago that I lost my knowing a couple years ago. We get stuck when we equate what we know with what we have read or what we have read that others have measured. Knowledge is collapsed knowing, at a point in time, and it can be valid for a very long time, but the knowing that we sense as we engage in the physical world can contradict fixed knowledge and we would be well-served to be strong enough to go with the knowing that we are sensing in the now. Losing that capability of knowing as a full body sensory intelligence caused me a lot of consternation.

    Now, I am going to ponder: "In short, movement is what enables our bodies to operate in all their delicate, wondrous complexity."

    #25 The beauty of your comment @CityVP Manjit for me is that the discussion can go on like the layers of an onion. There is the discussion in science as to the influence of the observer. As well, I have heard those who discuss reaching a point of observing their own meditation. This discussion expands into an area of doing which is beyond the physical. In my buzz, I make the following statement: Whereas animals act in a way that demonstrates what they know in the real world, humans also know without necessarily exerting the effort of doing what they know; the knowing remains in an abstract sense.

    #23 In terms of action and meditation - to do and observe is a doing - but not to do and observe is observation, then one is not shaping observation with one's doing, but observing in the fullness - that is what meaningful meditation is, otherwise we engage in a doing called meditation.

    #20 What I really meant is that integration of both quant+ qualit research methods(inputs) may yield unified results and clear cut evidence(ouputs) and lead to one action(decision),while, the same method of integrated quant+qual research on different research area my lead to multiple actions or multiple decisions .I wish it would satisfy your need.

    #22 Thank you @CityVP Manjit, for your comment, perspective and share. I can relate to everything you write. I have one question; how do you see "action and meditation" as distinct from "action and doing"? From my perspective, there is no difference between "movement as it relates to heart, lung and spine" and "sitting with the conception and allowing it to wash over one's mind."
    CityVP Manjit
    04/12/2016 #22 CityVP Manjit
    I love the distinction here between action and doing. It further emphasizes for me the distinction between action learning and learning. The biggest challenge I have is in understanding and translating information through a mathematical lens and that simply underscores why mathematics should be taught far more differently to the young - not at all the way it was taught to me.

    So even conceptually created formula's are challenging for me whereas visual representations of the same thing make things far more accessible for me and so the idea of movement as it relates to heart, lung and spine was meaningful.

    The value however in conceptual formula (and this is opposite to a formulaic response) is sitting with the conception and allowing it to wash over one's mind. The link then between action and meditation becomes vitally important, even more important than the distinction between action and doing.

    #18 I respectfully suggest @Mohammed Sultan that perhaps it is not the "integration of the input" that led to a separation of the output and yielded to actions but to the "separation of the reasons". I can only assume that the actions occurring at this stage are isolated from the task at hand.

    #15 The question "Why" always reveal an integration of the both approaches qual+quant by giving more insights and sometimes also lead to to clear separation between what are findings and what's interpretation.An example of using the question why or what are the reasons ;Why our brand has been eroded by a new start up in a particular area ? the answer to the question help us to have an integrated idea and understanding of both the dynamics and psychology of this marketplace .And can also lead to a clear separation of the reasons as it may be because a lack of demand or a lack of advertising support.In the first example we may need one solid decision to solve the problem of brand eroding and in the second example we may need two separate decisions; economic and advertising decisions.For the first we may need to understand the trend of Per Capita and for the second we may need to increase the advertising budget.The integration of the input have led to a separation of the output and yielded to actions.

    @ Sara Jacobovici.It's really a great post.At least if we couldn't absorb your wisdom because it goes beyond our knowledge ,we can enjoy your logic.The sign of intelligence is to bear two opposing processes in mind and still functioning well.You took us "both ways" to reach the "action" stage without seeing any red lights.From a quantitative process to a qualitative conclusion,to reaching results and taking actions,and the other way round from qualitative insights to quantitative measures that may also have more appeal to some people.I am really moved by your way of thinking, when you also integrated both qualitative and quantitative processes,not only to stretch our thinking beyond logic and norms by asking ",why" but also make our journey with your way of thinking more enjoyable.These are the types of questions which are put to our qualitative methods ,questions which demand an explanation and understanding of behavior ,rather than simply a description and enumeration of it.I am sure that the value of integrating both processes provides not only insights and understanding to our strategic decisions ,but also add an extra dimension to the type of information provided for an effective plan with feeling.
